#Hi all,
# In my work I do a lot of statistical analysis and present them in
#tables in my papers. I am trying to write a function which creates a
#LaTeX file from a matrix. It seems to work fine except that I can't find
#a way to get Octave to print a \ character as is \begin{tabular} or
#\end{tabular} (this will only make sense to LaTeX users). The first
#gives me egin{tabular} and the second gives the warning
#
#warning: unrecognized escape sequence `\e' -- converting to `e'
#
#so I get end{tabular} rather than \end{tabular}. Is there an output
#conversion that applies to this case? I know there is one for the symbol
#%. For the other symbols like & no conversion is necessary but Octave
#attaches importance to the symbol \.
#
try \\ (double backslash) like:
fprintf(fd,'\\end{tabular}\n`);
